CBC High School

The CBC High School Innovation Commons was completed in 2018. This 8,000 square-foot space started as the school’s library and contained the traditional study carrels, book stacks and a circulation desk. Teachers and administrators realized they could do more so they renovated the entire area so it would support their STEM classes, Leadership and Entrepreneurship programs.

At CBC, we are thrilled with our ongoing relationship with Color Art. From the moment we decided to use them, to now, several months after our project is complete, the commitment and service has been top-notch. As a client, we looked to partner with someone who would listen to our needs, be responsive to our concerns, and help us to craft our vision for our space. Color Art did all of those things, and more. With projects of this scope, there are bound to be nervous moments. Color Art, and in particular Kelly Hardy, was never more than a phone call or text away. Our project was delivered as envisioned, on time, and on budget. Color Art didn’t just sell us furniture. From the outset, it was apparent that they were invested in CBC and our project for the long-term. They went above and beyond for the CBC community to support our annual STEM Trivia. It was this gesture, and many others, that told us that we made the right decision to partner with Color Art.” – Jim Brockman, Assistant Principal for Enrollment Management

Brentwood School District

Brentwood School District, with Ittner Architects, was in search of a partner that could support their new pedagogical initiatives; all the rooms in both middle and high schools would be outfitted with new technology and furniture. Brentwood was excited to partner with Color Art once they understood the resources we and Steelcase offered support their vision. They utilized resources like discovery process sessions, teacher workshops and Steelcase’s test drive program to make sure everyone was involved and understanding. We also created an early budget to make sure furniture selections were not only innovative but also financially responsible.

We were originally overwhelmed at the thought of this huge project but Color Art stewarded us through all of the steps. The Color Art team collaborated with our administrators and teachers throughout and we truly felt that our voice was heard. I was consistently impressed with the expertise and professionalism of the Color Art team. We are currently in the final phase of the project and we are thrilled with the process, the furniture selection, and the budget. I highly recommend the services of Color Art.” Dr. Brian Lane, Superintendent

Union School District

Last year, Union school district put out a request for quote with the goal of finding a furniture partner that could assist them with multiple projects; they were in the process of building a new elementary school, adding-on to a middle school and renovating their high school media center. Project leaders wanted a partner that not only offered value but sourced quality products and had a proven process that would support them. We are so honored to have been selected as this partner and have worked with Union to outfit not only the initial three projects, but other spaces as well.

“Color Art made an overwhelming job of ordering furniture for a new elementary school very manageable. It was a great partnership. The team from Color Art became very much a part of the Union R-XI team during this process. They were very personal and professional while listening to our ideas and concerns, and best of all our project can in under budget.”
